"Four Freshmen and Five Saxes" plus 10” album “... and Five Trombones

Capitol T844 (UK), released 1957 / 10" LP "Five Trombones": LC 6812 (UK), released 1956

The inimitable Four Freshmen sound is captured here in a great programme of standards, with the arrangements shared by Pete Rugulo and Dick Reynolds. They survey the Great American Songbook, with great versions of "Liza" (George & Ira Gershwin), Isham Jones' "You've Got Me Crying Again", Rodgers & Hart's "This Can't Be Love", British bandleader Ray Noble's "The Very Thought Of You", Vincent Youman's "Sometimes I'm Happy", Hoagy Carmichael's "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and six others.

On the 10" "Trombones" album, all arranged by Pete Rugulo, there appear "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", "I Remember You", Gershwin's "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "You Made Me Love You", Matt Dennis' "Angel Eyes", "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "Mam'selle", Kurt Weill's "Speak Low", and Kern-Hammerstein's "The Last Time I Saw Paris". The 10" LP omits only two tracks which are on the 12" version of this album.
